Major surgery such as joint replacements require a few nights' stay in hospital to ensure effective pain relief and to assist you with mobilisation.

Certain conditions are amenable to ultrasound guided injections which are performed by experienced musculo-sceletal radiologists. Some of these are diagnostic while others have the potential to cure disease.
Most keyhole operations of the knee and all hand surgery are perfomed as day surgery procedures.
